In “I Too Dream America” (published by Trafford Publishing), the 2004 book by Darlington Ndubuike which is getting a revived marketing push, parents and teachers are given a cultural mirror that will allow them to connect with children through multicultural classroom activities.
“I Too Dream America” draws heavily from Ndubuike’s life as a successful educator. He uses his accomplishments to examine the various cultures in which he has worked as a teacher. His goal in taking this close look at his background and the diversity he has worked in is to present culture in a form that informs and teaches readers, allowing them to make cross-cultural connections and to see their own culture through this cultural mirror.
A colleague of Ndubuike’s, Dr. Hanson, observes about the book:
"‘I Too Dream America’ gives readers a tantalizing glimpse into a world few Americans have experienced or imagined. As he relates his youthful experiences in Nigeria, we are simultaneously intrigued and astonished by the sense of participation his stories deliver. He makes it possible for readers to share his adventures, successes, and tragedies as participants in his vivid memories of a unique African cultural heritage."
